Encounters. Story by Anna Cooke. Photography by Randy Batista.


ound for Florida from Ontario in a modified bus were eighteen dogs, previously labeled “a


menace to society” and sentenced to death. They had finally been granted a second chance. Their freedom driver was Rob Scheinberg, co-owner of Dog Tales, an Ontario dog rescue and horse sanctuary. For almost two years, he fought the court to save the dogs’ lives after their confiscation in a 2015 dogfighting bust. In 2016, while in the custody of the Ontario


SPCA (OSPCA), Brian Kilcommons, a dog behavior counselor, invited Aimee Sadler, founder of Dogs Playing for Life, to observe the dogs and consult with the shelter about the possibility of organizing play- groups for them. Before she left the shelter, Aimee took Rob aside and said, “By the way, if you end up winning them, I would like to work with you and these dogs.” Having watched her remarkable interaction with


the shelter dogs, Rob never forgot Aimee’s offer. Their initial meeting and Rob’s subsequent offer to pay for the care and transport of the dogs to Florida would be mitigating factors in the court’s decision to spare their lives.
